In the bowling world, this is considered a Paradox. Our new high performance creation offers unexplainable hook and power on the heaviest of oil patterns.

Ebonite Announces New Balls

 Coming from Ebonite: 
Ebonite Warrior featuring the GB 13.3 Pearl Red/Black Cherry/Red Pearl coverstock envelops the new Iron Fist core shape. Cover preparation is 500, 2000 Abralon Polished with Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish

Ebonite reports: Our brand new GB 13.3 Pearl cover is our most aggressive coverstock. We started with the original chemistry of the proven GB 10.7 (The One) and dramatically increased the porosity levels to aggressively displace oil which gives the GB 13.3 cover the ability to read the mid-lane and back end stronger than any of our other covers.”  Available July 7th, 2015.

Ebonite Game Breaker 2 Gold Reminiscent of The One, the Royal/Gold/ Blue GB 10.7 Pearl coverstock encloses the high flare Enhanced V2 core, finished to 500, and 1000 Abralon then polished with Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish.

In designing the GB2 Gold, Ebonite wanted to create the perfect complement to its predecessor, the GB2. The goal is to create a ball that is cleaner through the front, while maintaining the strong and continuous move at the back end which the Game Breaker line is known for. This ball is ideal for medium oil lane conditions.

Ebonite expounded: “Very few cover stocks have the strong, rich heritage as our GB 10.7. When it comes to consistency and reliability, others take a back seat. By infusing pearl additives into this proven cover, we have created the perfect complement to the highly successful Game Breaker 2.” Available August 18th, 2015

Ebonite Adrenaline Shot is Silver/Purple GB 12.0 Hybrid coverstock wrapping the high flare Adrenaline Core, finished with 500, 2000 Abralon

The design intent behind the Adrenaline Shot is to create a ball that fills the gap between our Game Breaker 2 and Code of Honor when it comes to total overall hook.

Ebonite reports: “Our brand new GB 12.0 Hybrid cover is based on the original chemistry of the proven GB 10.7 (from The One). The porosity levels have been increased to allow for faster oil displacement, which gives the GB 12.0 cover the ability to read the mid-lane and back end stronger.”
